Cheryl Moore decided to enter the Kent Art Association juried show in the pastel category for the first time in about 10 years...and she won. This accomplishment is impressive in itself, but add in the fact that when she entered a decade ago she also earned the prize, and it is clear Mrs. Moore has a rare talent. Often introducing herself to parents and visitors in her witty manner, she says, “Hi, I’m Cheryl Moore, and I’m the art department.” This always garners a laugh, but it is simply true; Mrs. Moore has been the backbone of a dynamic, quietly transformational program here since she joined South Kent School in 2008.

Galileo Galilei was on trial once again at South Kent School on Wednesday, March 6th, and the entire Fourth Form participated in the project, embodying historical characters from 17th century Italy. The class was split into two consecutive trials, both with a modern courtroom twist. The first was based on the Decree of 1616 forbidding Galileo to spread his ideas supporting Copernican heliocentrism and the second modeled the subsequent 1633 trial of Galileo by the Roman Inquisition.
